for national defense and other reasons. but now they're loaning them out to local law enforcement and law enforcement's also buying drones directly. so they have high-resolution cameras, heat censors and sophisticated radar on the border protection drones that can help track criminal activity in the united states, just as the c.i.a. uses predators and other drones to spy on militants in pakistan, nuclear sites in iran and other targets around the globe. for decades, u.s. courts have allowed law enforcement to conduct aerial surveillance without a warrant. this is that sort of open spaces doctrine. i'm not saying it makes it right but the government has been doing it for decades. some of the courts have apparently ruled that what a person does in the open, even behind a back yard fence, can be seen from a passing airplane and is not protected by privacy laws. you know, i don't think i agree with that. if you're swimming in your pool in your back yard, if you're in your hot tub in your back yard, just because we have the technology to be able to see you in your hot tub, does that really mea
, to require those that traffic in firearms by wrongfully obtaining two or more firearms, and we'll give law enforcement more effective tools. the substitute also incorporates a number of changes, the result of suggestions from senator grassley and his staff. we have been working on this since january. tried to be responsive to the ranking member's concerns and suggestions, and have reached across the aisle to other senators. as a a.t.f. whistleblower, senator grassley has been the lead senator in whistleblower legislation, was a a.t.f. whistleblower, who testified last congress that the existing laws are toothless and they can help law enforcement -- can't help law enforcement, and that's why law enforcement consistently has called for firearms trafficking statute that can be effective and go after straw purchasers. we need now is to create better law enforcement tools. and i think this will -- the senators can join together on this will close a very dangerous loophole in the law that mexican drug cartels and gangs and other criminals have exploited for too long. stop illegal trafficking th
thoughtfully. you know, the degree to which there is movement away from the current law, probably more related to fear of destruction and it'll be almost anything else. and that maybe the in some cases and it may be bad in some cases. that's a really thoughtful conclusion, isn't it? [laughter] >> you covered the basics. >> completely covered. >> you know, much of the opening comments that mark, you put out there, sort of frame a picture of where we could be in the system. with real emphasis on wellness, taking fee-for-service element and deemphasizing it, maybe even eliminating it from the system. i think most of us think that's exactly where we like to go. but which when here and there, i think there's a concern about what that looks like as it launches. and so maybe you can talk a little bit about some of the other things that might help us because you that such great experiences with medicare d. this is a much bigger scale obviously. any other thoughts you have about how we get from here to the vision of what it looks like i've years out? >> it's going to be a lot of -- i think the corollar
at the end of the last congress. how to make a law. just read the look. and i recognize that you would hardly recognize that civics lesson if you see what's happening on the floor here today and over the last period of time. but i have enormous, enormous respect for the chairman of the appropriations committee. we sat on that committee together for a number of years. i appreciate that he wanted to bring a bill to the floor that honors the budget control act. i disagree with the tactic of putting a reinforcement of the sequester into the law. it exists. we have to do the sequester unless we can head it off. unless the safety of our troops and their training, our national security, the education of our children, the safety of our neighbors, unless that takes precedence over protecting tax breaks for corporate jets, businesses that send jobs overseas, the list goes on and i mentioned it now more than one time. so i urge my colleagues to think carefully about this vote. this isn't a vote to shut down government or not. that vote will come another time. the senate isn't going to accept this bill.
restrictive law in all of america. if they can just get rid of reading, they'll have the perfect state at least women still have the right to leave arkansas. >> barack obama takes a group of republican senators out for a fancy dinner. sean hannity demands to know why this president so obviously hates lunch. today is the birthday of bryan cranston comedian wanda sykes and the late great singer-songwriter townes van zandt. on this date, u.s.a. for africa's "we are the world" was released to the world bringing people of all nations all races and creeds together say in unison, why the hell is dan aykroyd on this record? this is "viewpoint." >> john: good evening, i'm john fuglesang. this is "viewpoint." president obama hasn't given up hopes yet for a grand bargain with republicans that would both raise taxes and slash the deficit. even if that means cutting social insurance programs which it would. but with a sequester now law despite mr. obama campaigning against it, he's now trying a new kind of outreach to the g.o.p. call it dining diplomacy. this afternoon, the president broke bread wi
and furious, i was told by whistle blowers that there were gaps in federal laws concerning straw purchasers which should be addressed, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way ince
of the children and education. we've made sure that our law enforcement is taken care of, but we've also made those difficult choices early on that washington could really learn from in budgeting. i congratulate congressman messer for bringing this particular bill. it's a good government bill. i know the other side of the aisle is talking about the sequester, and i find it ironic that "the washington times" today has a headline that says, 400 more jobs were created in spite of the sequester. so i don't believe that the sky is falling here. this legislation requires the president to do some simple math and include with his budget, should he choose to submit one, an estimate of the cost of the deficit per taxpayer. taxpayers just simply deserve to know how much they owe for washington's out-of-control spending. after all, every dime that the federal government borrows is saddled on this generation and the next generation and generations to follow. right now the cost of washington's $16 trillion of national debt totals more than $147,000 per taxpayer. in fact, approximately every minute, mr. spe
, the court said, cannot control as to whether the law is constitutional, but does control as to whether the antiinjunction statute applies. and this reminded me of louis carroll. [laughter] when i use a word, when i use a word like humpty dumpty, it means just what i choose it to mean, neither more, nor less. now, the magic of this dueling, call it taxonomy, means that because it is a penalty the court could go forward to consider its legality. because, but because it is a tax and not a penalty, it is a lawful exercise of the taxing power, not an unlawful exerlz of the power to regulate commerce. and a related irony is that five justices concluded that congress did not have the power under the commerce clause to regulate doing nothing. that is to say not buying health insurance. but five justices -- only chief justice in both camps -- held that congress does have the power to impose a tax for doing the very same nothing. not buying health insurance. so the constitutional law professor, president, who insisted that obamacare was constitutional was right all along. but he was right becaus
for sticking with us this hour. this weekend at harvard law school, the official who just stepped down as the top lawyer in the pentagon weighed in on the next big civil rights cases that are coming up before the supreme court. this month the court is going to be hearing arguments on same-sex marriage under the law. and former pentagon general counsel jay johnson told the black law students association at harvard, quote, our gay brothers and sisters who are in the struggle for marriage equality right now in the state legislatures and in the courts of this country are marching step by step the same road toward equal treatment under law that we know so well. their cause is our cause. he went on to explain his view that the impact of laws banning equal marriage rights would be particularly -- and are now particularly cruel and unfair, in his words, to people who are serving in the u.s. military. the same argument is made by iraq and afghanistan veterans of america in a brief that they have filed, along with a number of other former military officials with the supreme court about one of th

or down. up, man's old age dream, the ultimate and individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of owe toa tal tehranism totalitarianism. those who would trade freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. given the top of this discussion, the asserted power of the president to take the life of a u.s. citizen on u.s. soil without due process of law, that last portion bears reading again. those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course to the ant heap of totalitarianism. in this vote harvesting time, they use terms like the great society, or as we were told a few days ago by the president, we must accept a greater government activity in the affairs of the people. but they've been a little more ex applies it in the past and among themselves. and of all of the things i now will quote have appeared in print. these are not republican accusations. for example, they have voices that say -- quote -- "the cold war will end through our acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism." another voice says "the profit mot
in the buildup to try to avoid these, you know, spending changes that he signed into law and there's a real question, given those numbers, chris, about whether people are starting to doubt him. they're starting to doubt whether they're getting the straight scoop. >> you got it. and the real fight is just beginning now, which is over the continuing resolution to fund the government. the current one expires on the 27th of march and that's the real bite that's coming. will the president have more or less credibility in that fight after his sequester scare stuff? i would say less. >> megyn: we'll watch it and see how the polling goes. chris, thank you. >> you bet. >> megyn: in addition to the new numberses fox news poll find that americans had it with high gas prices and with the washington spending. the prices at the pump topping the list of voter gripes, 84% say that they are fed up with high gas prices. 81%, that's actually number two, say the growing deficit is frustrating. while nearly as many are fed up with too much government spending and for that matter with gridlock in washington. the
on the children we end up with wildly different policies and laws in place than we do right now. i will give you a quick example. i talked in this book about the -- about a hot topic that causes a lot of consternation which is vouchers. the idea that for low-income kids who would be trapped in failing schools, should they have the opportunity to take a voucher, a publicly funded voucher and attend a private school and people go nuts when you talk about this issue. when you hear them, the people who are against vouchers, they say you're taking money away from the schools that need it the most, you are only helping some of the kids, there is another feeling school that needs to get better, to look ate way you'd be etc. and i start from the prospect of saying you are a parent, and your house was zoned to a failing school and you have the opportunity to participate in a program that will allow you to take money and send your kid to a great private school, would you do it? there's not a person anywhere that i have met who said i would not keep my kid -- i would keep my kid in the filling school becau

. it will not be happening for at least 30 days because that is a period of time by law that federal employees need to be notified that their subject to furlough. that is casting little bit of a different feel about this. host: here is the baltimore sun -- the social security administration said it might shoulder across-the-board spending cuts without spending habits -- sending any of its full-time employees home. guest: that is a good example of how agencies will determine on a one by one basis of how they will deal with this. you heard the defense department saying that it was a lot that as soon as it was possible, they were going to furlough employes one day each week. that is a 20% pay cut for civilian employees at the defense department. each agency will have autonomy in how they implement these cuts. each agency is going to release their plan on an individual basis. host: what about benefits? guest: this will affect -- will not impact retirement plans or insurance. for employers -- employees that received a match, if you're not putting as much pate, you'll not be contributing as much to your
years off from writing a budget which of course is their lawful duty. i think there is not enough print sometimes dedicated to imnovemberable democrats when they're, when they happen to be doing nothing. maybe this will help that. bill: let me put a fine point what he said. jerry, you need to understand, referring to senator moran, we're not going to do anything until after the election. bob, why would that be? >> for a couple reasons. first of all, this was during the time of the budget control act where they set up the super-committee from which all things were going to spring. you couldn't move anything having to do with finances until that committee made a decision or didn't make a decision as it turns out. that's one. and two, in when you move up to election year, presidential election year particularly, nobody does anything that will upset the applecart. bill: but mary katherine's point is you have your priorities. if you want to pursue something like confirmation of jack lew you can get that done in one afternoon. >> that's right. bill: the other big stuff when you have to show y
, the position the states are in as a result of the law being passed eric -- past. having said that, i think there is a lot that people miss with respect to the drivers of healthcare cost. i think part of this reflects the fact that our body politic is reluctant to accept certain realities of the academic literature. finkelstein's research demonstrated that one of the big drivers of healthcare cost inflation was the rapid expansion of federally subsidized insurance in the 1960's to medicare and medicaid. the provision of federally subsidized insurance is a big driver of health service consumption and puts a lot of upward pressure on costs. there of another academic studies. one basically look at the factors throughout countries that drive health inflation. one of the big factors is the rate of growth of government provided health care services. if we are with ourselves, we have to recognize that one of the big drivers of healthcare cost inflation is the extent to which the federal government is subsidizing healthcare through various means. it will be difficult for us to get that under contro

this month by the cbo indicate that, under current law, the federal deficit will narrow from seven percent of gdp last year to two and a half percent in 2015. the federal head by the public, including that held by the federal reserve, is projected to remain roughly 75% of gdp through much of the current decade. however, a substantial portion of the recent progress in lowering the deficit has been concentrated in the near-term budget she says -- budget changes. the cbo estimates that a deficit reduction policy will slow the pace of real gdp growth by about 1.5 or signage points this year. -- 1.5 percentage points this year. the sequestration will and she viewed two 6/10 of a percentage point on the economic drag this year. this additional near-term burden on the recovery is significant. moreover, besides having adverse effects on jobs and income skies lower recovery would lead less actual deficit reduction in the short run. at the same time, despite progress in reducing near-term budget deficits, the difficult process of determining longer problems has only begun. the cbo projects that the

to washington, d.c. where severe spending cuts are officially the law of the land. new word this morning from president obama. he's putting the blame squarely on congressional republicans for not stopping the sequester from taking effect. >> here's the thing. none of this is necessary. it's happening because republicans in congress chose this outcome over closing a single wasteful tax loophole that helps reduce the deficit. just this week they decided that protecting special interest tax breaks for the well off and well connected is more important than protecting our military and middle class families from these cuts. >> but republicans aren't having any of it in their weekly address today throwing the blame right back at president and democrats. >> these devastating, across the board cuts, first proposed by the president, will affect the lives of so many hard-working americans. the president failed to act, and his senate never passed a bill to replace the sequester. >> well, here's where we stand. $85 billion in federal spending must be cut between now and october 1st. that includes a 9% hit

an analogy to the use of torture. there are american laws and international laws against the use of torture. now, george bush said that he could override that, right, as president. and he could use torture because he believes we got good information. he violated international law and was never held responsible for it. president obama disagrees with president bush on torture but president obama does believe his executive authority gives him an unlimited ability to use drones as killing machines overseas and now we know in the united states of america. and i think that pushes the authorization too far as well. >> absolutely. >> bill: those are all of the questions that have not been answered. look, there are always going to be wars. there are always going to be drones, now we know. and i'm not saying ban drones, shoot, put them all down and never use them again. but there has to be some guiding policy on when the use of a drone is acceptable and when its's not for what purpose against whom and that policy i believe also should be made by congress, not the president of the united states. we do

saying, that there are no geographic limitations. they also, then, say that the laws of war apply. the laws of war basically mean that you don't get due process. and i can understand that in a battlefield. i'm not for reading miranda rights to people that are shooting at us. if you're an opposing soldier, you shoot at me, we kill you. there is no miranda rights. nears no jury, no trials, no due process. but they say america is the battlefield. that's a huge mistake. and i think most americans would disagree with them if they knew the implications. >> john brennan whose nomination to lead the cia was temporarily blocked by rand's filibuster was confirmed yesterday by a senate vote of 63-34. in fact, both mccain and graham voted to support brennan with graham calling it, quote, a referendum on the drone program, adding that before the filibuster, he had planned on voting no. that infuriated supporters of rand paul who launched an online movement with the hash tag primarygraham. they hammered him for dining in a d.c. restaurant while at the same time paul was questioning the administ

's sort of like if you're not for all of these incredible changes to the laws, perhaps even the constitution, that you are de facto aiding and abetting any mass shooting. and it's felt like this from immediately, like there were people out there who never did like the second amendment, and they found an opportunity to go ahead and make this sort of harsh, you know, move against people who rightfully own guns. and by the way, 99 percent of these lawful gun owners don't commit any crimes. so i do think it is finger pointing -- >> well, if you let me say something, i don't know about the other people, all i know about is this legislation -- charles: but what's the purpose for the anger management course? >> it doesn't point fingers at anyone. it does not ban any guns. it does not ban any ammunition. it just says let's look inside and see what triggers, what triggers may be, may be that would cause me to reach for my gun. charles: okay, senator gibson, what if i have an anger management issue? can i have a gun? i've never committed a crime, i've never hurt anyone, but i fly off
. the only ones that would have guns would be the government and of course criminals who ignore gun laws. i call it the mexico model. guns are outlawed in mexico. the citizens cannot possess guns. there is no second amendment. so the government has guns and criminals have guns. some of those criminals have guns thanks in part to the united states government sending 2,000 assault weapons to them in fast and furious. but that's another story. u.s. cities are moving toward the mexico model. chicago and washington, d.c., have laws that make it very difficult for a citizen to exercise the second amendment. these cities make it difficult to even own a firearm, but all three places -- mexico, chicago, washington, d.c. -- all have a reputation of violent, unsafe places. why? because they are. in d.c., if d.c. was so safe, why are government guards everywhere in the city? even here in this capitol building there are armed guards on the roof, at the doors, at the back doors, at the doors over to the east and to the west. it's hypocritical of the gun control crowd in this chamber to say more guns for
over the hill into san jose and that's where local law enforcement agencies will join the motorcade. our live coverage will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the request of the families. former "american idol" finalist james durbin will be performing one song at the service to honor the officers. we just saw that on the santa cruz police blog website. we do have a call in to the police spokesperson to ask about any more final details. if we hear from them, we'll bring it to you in another update coming up next hour. janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. >>> ktvu's coverage of the memorial begins during our morning news at 4:30. it will continue at 11:00 a.m. as the funeral precision makes its way from santa cruz to san jose. the service is scheduled to begin at noon. >>> in the meantime we're learning new details about the man who shot and killed the two santa cruz police officers lost week. investigators say 35-year-old jeremy goulet was moving out of his house when the detectives arrived at his door. goulet had just lost his job at a coffee shop and was getting rid of his bel
we don't have a federal law that bans illegal gun trafficking. background pass should pass. shame on the congress if we can't get behind a law that has support from 90% of the american people and 80% of gun owners. 80% of gun owners think that everybody who buys a gun in this country should go through a basic criminal background check, so i think ultimately republicans will not be able to vote against that. the question is, can we pass a ban on the high-capacity magazines. a survey came out that said the majority of gun owners in our state support getting these 20, 30, 100-round magazines off the streets. i think that while all the attention has been on assault weapon ban, which is hard to pass, we can probably get a ban on high-capacity magazines through, and frankly to the parents in newtown, that would make a bigger difference in a lot of ways than the assault weapons badge. >>> chris murphy, thanks for your time today. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> here's a quick look. john kerry is on hi way back to the u.s. after his first trip abroad. kerry visited nine countries in 11
